7:13 am
>> you're saying in boston, you could have more cases report snd s s reported? >> well, with the norovirus, probably, you've heard that this is the extent of it. but it's a very -- it's a disease that is very easily passed and spreads very, very quickly, from person to person. >> you're convinced when you reopen the store near boston, people will not be getting sick if they go back to eat there? restaurant will be complete e pletely sanitized and every employee will have been tested and assured they do not have norovirus. >> the e. coli outbreak started in early october. dozens of people got sick. it's my understanding that after weeks of investigating this, the fda has not found an exact source of that e. coli bacteria, is that true? >> it's true. we have had teams looking at this.
7:14 am
an abundance of caution and surfaces. thousands and thousands of tests, matt, all came back negative for e. coli. if there is a silver lining in this, it is that we have looked at every single ingredient that we use at chipotle. we use 64 ingredients that we bring in, from farm through the distribution network, how we prepare the food, serve the food. we've had a team of food safety experts to raise our standards from the already industry norms that are -- >> you call it a silver lining. it might be troubling. if you can't identify the source, how do you eliminate it in the future? >> unfortunately, what got people sick, was no longer in the system by the time they even showed symptoms. so, unfortunately, you'll not find that.

7:16 am
mr. ells, this company started with a great idea and grew too fast. that it took off at a rate where you couldn't keep control of things like sourcing and quality control. even things that would affect the public health. is there some merit to that claim? >> i don't think so. because if you look at the quality of our ingredients over time, we've made great strides in sourcing better quality food. more organics. more local and sustainably raised foods. this was a very unfortunate incident, and i'm deeply sorry this happened. but the procedures we're putting in place today are so above industry norms that we are going to be the safest place to eat. >> steve ells, good of you to join us this morning. we know you have a lot going on. >> thank you. now, we go to colorado and a fiery day in court for the man accused of killing a police officer and two others at a planned parenthood last month. robert dear in court to be
